NAFFCO provides fire retardant paint that will protect the structure of your building during a fire. Our range of paint can be applied to steel structures, concrete and more for a high level of protection. We supply cementitious paint that can protect your structure for up to 4 hours.
Cementitious fire protection is normally spray applied using specialist equipment to protect structural steel or concrete from the effects of fire for a nominal fire resistance period.
Gypsum based sprays are sometimes considered as Cementitious and may be used internally in the same way as Portland cement sprays, though most gypsums are not suitable for external or semi-external locations.
The gypsum based fireproofing Cementitious paint has excellent physical properties for interior/architectural uses and Cementitious paint can give up to 4 hours fire protection.
Intumescent fire resistant coatings are paint like coatings that are applied to structural steel members. Intumescent can take several forms; in general they are paint, though they may also be mastic or foam composite. The final thickness of these coatings typically ranges from 0.03 inches to 0.50 inches. The coatings are designed to provide insulation to the steel in the event of fire.
The intumescent coating is intended to provide an insulating barrier between fire and the structural steel. The insulating barrier is necessary to ensure the structural performance of the steel members at the temperatures anticipated during a fully developed fire. Intumescent coating can give up to 120 minutes fire protection.
